THE CONSOLATION SILVER MINING COMPANY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
THE CONSOLATION SILVER MINING COMPANY. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — Having applied in vain to the secretary of the above company for certain information about the mine, and knowing that other share holders are in the same position as myself, would you kindly furnish me with the informa tion required? Or perhaps the secretary might condescend to do it. The information which has been written for to the secretary is as follows:— 1. A copy of Captain (now In spector) Rosenwarne's report on the mine. 2. A resume' of the work done at the mine, together with a copy of the balance-sheet. And 3. The result of the private meeting held are the questions that were asked, and if you will kindly throw a little light on this peculiarly private or semi-private company, who do not ad verlise their meetings, you will be doing a service to some of the bewildered shareholders. —I am, &c, DISGUSTED. Clare, April 4, 1889.
THE KATE SILVER MINING COMPANY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
THE KATE SILVER MINING COMPACT. TO THE HTOTOE. Sir— I think the wisest course for share holders in suoh companies as the above, for which to all appearance there is very little prospect of their being anything but 'call- paying,' is to ' face the musio' at once, and decline to carry them on for the benefit to a large extent of the secretary, directors, &c. It is far better that they should be liquidated and done with than that a continual liability for calls should be incurred. It is most unjust to the shareholders that a 6d. call should be made in the Kate Company when one of 3d. was paid bo recently aB January last.— I Wn'&C' ? X.Y.Z.
S.A. COLONISATION SOCIETY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
S.A. COLONISATION SOCIETY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— I have received from the hon. sec, of the above society a card — certainly unique — containing a letter on one side, and the rulea of the society on the other ; the eecsnd role runs thus : — ' That the society Bhall have for its object bringing people to thia colony and settling them in newly-formed townehipB with Email suburban farms so as not to inter! era with present centres of labor.' I beg to raise three objections to thia rule. In the firat place the scheme is at leaBt 20 yeazs before its time : secondly, it is inopportune ; and, thirdly, we should provide for the unemployed of this colony before we bring others here. I may be wrong, but my feeling in the matter u, I think, rather general, and although I quite appreciate Mr. Honner's work, yet I should like to have these objections cleared before I become a member of his society. — I am, &3,, DUBIOUS. April 4, 18S9.
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
TO THE KDITOB. Sir — In your issue sf Saturday ' Dubious,' writing on the above subject, has expressed in a few words objections to my scheme raised by eome superficial thinkers. If you will allow ms I vill reply to them as briefly as possible. The first is, 'That the scheme ia 20 years before its time,' This is not true, because the materials to work it are at hand and available, viz., land, people, and money. How long they may zem&in idle reBts on the energy of those whose duty it is to use them, and that will greatly de pend on the intelligence of the people. I think it would be much more correct to say that 'Dubious' and his fellow-doubters are 20 years behind 'the times.' I would go even further back and say they are 100 years behind 'the times.' Of course it is difficult to eay how long it may take to rouse selfish people to a sense of their obliga tions. To say that a scheme 'is inopportune ' which undertakes to colonise vacant plaoes with people who have no means of ...
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN INDEBTEDNESS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN INDEBTED NESS. TO THE EDITOR, Sir— Your footnote to Mr- Varley's letter really leaves nothing for me to reply to were it notthathebBsmadeseveralgroBBmiBStatements. He 'being a~youug lawyer ought to know that abuse is npt argument, and that in his weak sndTaoOlating letter he has evidently adopted, the Did adage, 'When you have a bad case abuse the other side.' Not having so much lei sure time at my disposal as Mr. Varley evidently has, I will not trouble to respond in detail, as I should certainly like to in a matter which so deeply concerns thewelfare of this colony. I would advise Mr. Varley before rushing into print and 'figures in -support of his croaking and in his facts and figures. One glaring and pal pable instance as an example and test of the correctness of Mr. Varley's assertions will Eunice, and if Mr. Hawker has to rely on a champion such as Mr. Varley he would doubt lesB Bay— 'Save me from my frieads.'

THE SCHOOL OF MINES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
THB SCHOOL OF MESTES. TO THB EDUOB. Sir— It is rather painful to see the persistent way in which certain men interested in mining are doing their best to bring the School of Mines into disrepute. Though a stranger from the old country, where my experience has been very varied, 1 cannot help replying to certain casty letters that have appeared lately. Chief among these is a letter written by one who pro fesses to bave been 26 * years in mining, ' evidently thinking this awe-inspiring nom de plume will give force and weight to childish arguments. This letter, like many others, is a long'complaint of nothing eke but that those starting on a professional career in mining find a difficulty at the start. 'xniBis none other out tne resolutions ol .fro ffesBors Bennieand Tate, that pure mathematics be made » coxnpnlsoty examination before students can be entered aB competent to start fate School of Mines curriculum. It is sur prising to me, an English graduate, that this matter should not h...
"BUT DO WE TRY?" TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
♦' BUT DO WE TRY ?' TO THB EDITOB, Sir— It is said that a countryman saw under a bell knob attached to a town entrance 'Please ring the bell,' and he straightway complied. Now aB a question presupposes an answer I presume to venture a reply to your interrogation ' Do we try?' I cannot find it in 'Hansard,' but I well remember how the persistent determination in the Council to make the Land Bill play into the hands of the oligarchy led me on one occasion in a tone of despair to exclaim, ' It is of no use trying to reskt this tendency, let it pass.' Whether the Land Boards -will administer tne Act to the advantage of the country remains to be seen. They may either check the evil tendency of the new Land Act, or they may re tarQ the progress of the country,, bat they cannot stop its ultimate advance. This is God's world and not the devil's. Light iB springing up in the distance, We are as a people beginning to see that adequate produc tion can only come from smaller holdings of land, c...

HUNDRED OF CAMERON AND PORT WAKEFIELD DISTRICT COUNCIL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
HUKDRED OF CAMERON AND PORT WAKEFIELD DISTRICT COUNCIL. TO THE EIMTOH. Sir—' Fair Play' says he thinks Mr. Kimber knows tbe geography of Cameron better than ' Lochiel' does as to the distance of the boun dary from Port Wakefield and Snowtown, but if Mr. Kimber knew no more than 'fair Play' seems to know it would be little indeed. ' Fair Play'wiBheB to know how 'Lochiel' got the majority of ratepayers. In answer, I muBt inform him that every signature was ob tained by the particular wish of the persons whose signatures were affixed, and not by false representation, as stated by ' Fair Piay,' who Bays he knows one in particular who did not know what he was signing. This I em phatically deny, as every person signing the said petition was fully informed of its object. 'Fair Play' says it will be found that the Cameron people are not generally in favor of Snowtown. ThiB may be true of a few unim portant people like ' Fair Play,' but as to the people in general I would inform 'Fair Play' ...

STRONG EVIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
STROKG EVIDENCE. [From the Blackburue Times.] William Henry Holden, residing at -6, Whaliey Old-road, Blackburue, has ever since 1872, at frequent intervals, been subjected to indescribable suffering-, owing to terrible attacks of intense pain and swelling iu hia feet. His agony at such times almost drove him frantic. As is natural to euppose, everything that was recommended for the ailment, which was of an acute rheumatic nature, waa used, but either owing to the stubbornness of the complaint, or other causes, all the remedies applied proved futile. A few weeks ago Mr. JAolden, hearing how the life of Mr. William Buchanan, one of the Canard Steamship Com pany's enRineera, had been saved by St Jacobs oil; after he had been giren up by the Liver pool doctors to die and had been at times deprived of his reason by suffering, resolved to induce his son to try this oil, and procured a bottle from Jackson & Co.'s drug store. To his utter amazement, and that of all the members of h...
